He just is a more explosive skater and a faster decision maker than Malkin and Malkin has a much better one timer. It makes perfect sense to switch them, but DB refuses to do it for whatever reasons.
With how much more he seems to trust Sid defensively than Malkin, it really doesn't make much sense that he wouldn't at least try it. Unless he really just doesn't want his faceoff man having to move to the point after. I know Sid got kicked out of the dot and Kunitz took the faceoff instead of Malkin in the last game so who knows.
